Very dark brown, beige head. A bit sweet aroma, dried fruits, alcohol, some hoppy notes. Chocolatey with too much alcohol presence. Very sweet but still more bitter than Royal Extra The Lion Stout.

Black, decent head and lace. Nose of sweet malt, licorice, coffee and alcohol. Medium to thick bodied, lots of licorice, coffee, chocolate malt, alcohol is all over the place but oddly, I like it. Its sweet, smooth, flavorful and has a nice kick.

The first thing I noticed about this beer was the alcohol presence. Small head, mild flavor and hoppyness.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2002
Deep crimson red with a dark tan medium size shortish lasting ehad. Chocolate, coffee and medium roasted and caramel malt aroma. Medium body with flavours matching aromas plus a low acid vinous flavour and palate. The Alcohol is reasonably well masked considering the lightness of flavour and palate. My son says, ’it’s what I imagined a Jamaican beer would be like’.

Davhgbrew (928) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2002
I remember someone talking about this one on the forums, but I couldn’t remember if they said it was good or bad so I had to try it. Coffee/alcohol aroma, sweet flavors that get annoying after a while. Jamaica make a stout..who’d a thunk it!

ARMed (597) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Extremely black. Rich smell of brown sugar, chocolate and cocoa. A very malty tasting stout with a sweet undertone. Excellent with a nice dish of jerk chicken in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. A little too sweet for my overall liking.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2002
This beer is the closest thing to what I always wanted a stout to taste like. Which was really unexpected from Jamaica. Deep brown, tiny head. Aroma of toffee and chocolate cookies, taste of caramelised milk and chocolate, you have to concentrate really hard to find the liquorice (I’m not quite convinced it was there!) low bitterness slight sweetness, good body, felt like it had melted butter on the palate. Easy to drink at your own pace, very enjoyable. I want another just writing about it!

Lots of licorice flavour in this one. This one is a little on the sweet side and the alcohol does make an appearence as you near the end of your glass.
